April 16, 2006 |  

(Clearwisdom.net) On April 14, Sherry Zhang, spokeswoman of the Coalition to Investigate the Persecution, the full name of which is the "Coalition to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong in China (CIPFG)", warmly welcomed renowned civil rights lawyer Gao Zhisheng to join the coalition and expressed admiration for his courage.

Sherry Zhang said: "We all admire his courage. He is still in Mainland China and is under close monitoring. He is so courageous to openly announce that he wants to join this investigation coalition while facing all the threats. We are very happy to have him on board."

Attorney Gao stressed before that he not only wished to join but also believed that he was qualified for this coalition:

"I want to emphasize that my wish to join this process is not out of my personal career pursuit. I know of Falun Gong practitioners' suffering and have contact with them. If people, including the CCP, wish that the investigation will proceed without interference, I think I should join this process."

Attorney Gao believes that people should learn from the lesson of the holocaust and initiate the investigation as soon as possible.

"I hope such an investigation will be carried out as soon as possible because every minute of delay costs numerous innocent lives. We shall not regard these lives simply as a sacrifice of Falun Gong practitioners or their relatives; this is a sacrifice of the value of justice for all mankind," attorney Gao said.
